"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent"

About Me

      I began playing the guitar at the age of 14.  My first real guitar was a Fender Mustang (Yes, I still have it).  I played rhythm guitar in a small garage band and also in the High School Stage Band.  It was when I was in college that I first heard of Leo Kottke and his amazing guitar playing.  It changed the way I thought guitars were played.  I put the electric guitar down and picked up the acoustic.  I listened to dozens of guitarists, both acoustic and electric.  They all influenced my playing in someway. 


      In 1997 I recorded my first CD "Just Guitar".  "Hometown" followed in 2000 and my latest CD "Images" was released in 2004.  All 3 CDs incorporate traditional fingerstyle along with a double tapping technique, and all songs are original compositions.
